Have you heard of him and do you know where I can download his sermons for free?

The "police problem" is very different from a painter problem or a plumber problem.  Neither the painter nor the plumber can legally force you, at the point of a gun, to do anything.  That power is the prerogative of the police.  And because of that there does need to be special attention given to improper exercise of that power.

Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of Him that sent me, and to finish His work.

John 5;24
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 6;38
For I came down from Heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me.

John 6;40
And this is the will of Him that sent me, that everyone which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 7;33
Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto Him that sent me.

John 9;4
I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

John12;44-45

Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on Him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth Him that sent me.

John 13;20

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth Him that sent me.

John 15;21
But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not Him that sent me.

John 16;5-7
But now I go my way to Him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.

AMEN

So you are saying that the sins of the fathers ARE visited upon the 3rd and 4th generations?
Exodus 20:5
You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,


Visiting the iniquity, not the penalty of the sins.  Iniquity is the predisposition toward certain sins and transgressions based on the disobedience of someone's ancestors.

You are saying that God punishes someone before they are born?
No.  Unless you call being born into a fallen world with dysfunctional parents punishment.

It is certain that not all gays are born that way.  Anne Heche would be one. She spent years with Ellen only to dump her and marry a man.... Hers was by choice.

You have to study the person to gain insight on how far back this sickness goes. Speech and mannerisms must be observed.
Like I said, issues like this are very complex and each case must be looked at individually. 

In many cases, attraction is not just either/or.  It can be toward both. That was probably Ms Heche's situation.

If you are saying that homosexuality is determined before the child is born, you have a huge problem, and you should probably drop the premise that you are Christian.  If this is so, then God creates the sin He says he abhors.  And you state this quite plainly above.  Homosexuality is quite clearly a choice.


That makes the faulty assumption that at birth we are completely free from the sins and transgressions of our forebearers.  The Bible has a name for that: iniquity.  Those sins have an effect on how we develop, think and act. It is a predisposition to certain sins.





So you are saying that the sins of the fathers ARE visited upon the 3rd and 4th generations?

And perhaps it was the lust of another woman that made a child gay so that child would never be able to lust for the opposite sex?

You are saying that God punishes someone before they are born?

Certainly he knew Jeremiah before he was formed in the womb. (Jer 1:5 )

He also knew us..... Psalm 139:16 ...Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

So, based on how the folks sinned, then he made his selection to fulfill Numbers 14:18
“The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.”

It is certain that no all gays are born that way.  Anne Heche would be one. She spent years with Ellen only to dump her and marry a man.... Hers was by choice.

It also assumes that no child is born with demonic attachments.  This is also false.  While demons cannot take away a person's will, they can distort perception and wire the brain in certain ways.

Are you saying a person has no choice in who they have sex with?
There is always a choice in action
There is not always a choice in attraction.

The inclination towards homosexual behavior is shaped primarily by upbringing, society and environment, just like every other psychological disorder. 
Again, you are discounting other factors.  I have 2 grandchildren (adoptive) whose mother chose to do drugs during the pregnancy. Both of them have both developmental and psychological disorders from drugs.  Those issues have nothing to do with "upbringing, society and environment."

Mental stuff is rarely as simplistic as we might like it to be.

That's on the new ones. They are painting the new ones a darker color before launching.  I don't think there is a way to remedy the brightness of an existing Starlink chain. The one we saw the other night was bright. We didn't see the one last night because of clouds.

That's a nice story but so many of them are heartbreaking, little kids suffering incurable diseases and such.

I knew a Baptist minister who once said that God is not fair as we consider fairness.    The problem of suffering is a difficult one for us to even approach, given a good and loving God.   

Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness, I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord that do all these things.

Not evil in the sense of wickedness, but evil in the old sense, of misfortune or harm.

Well, I do actually have two more questions~the second question is....Who are the children of Abraham?
Natural children are by blood or formal conversion to Judaism.

But there are the grafted in children that are not by blood or formal conversion.

Quote
The third question: Are they by blood, or by God's promises?
Yes.  It is not an "either or" but more of a "both and."
